French director Xavier Legrand’s debut feature is an explosive family story, as gripping as it is authentic. Miriam is pushing for sole custody of their son, an unwilling witness to his father’s past abuses. Yet Antoine wins joint custody, setting in motion a chain of events that is almost unbearably tense. Carefully and sensitively directed with intense, restrained performances throughout, this is a powerful, human scale reminder of how domestic violence simmers. Borderlines Film Festival
